THE SOLAS CONTAINER WEIGHT VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT

THE Griptech TC3000 IS THE ONLY MOBILE WEIGHING SYSTEM WORLDWIDE THAT MEETS BOTH OF THE PROPOSED METHODS TO SOLAS SAFETY GUIDELINES.

“The SOLAS Container Weight Verification Requirement” is coming into effect from July 2016. The intention is to reduce the number of accidents at sea which are caused by wrongly declared container weights. SOLAS is an international maritime safety treaty designed to ensure that ships comply with minimum safety standards in construction, equipment and operation. The weighing equipment used must meet the applicable accuracy standards and requirements of the State in which the equipment is being used. The ports will refuse receiving any container without the data / certified weight of the container, and there are no exceptions available

The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) SOLAS amendments provide two approved methods in determining the container weight:

– Method 1 – The shipper (or third party) weighs the complete packed container using calibrated and certified equipment:

The Griptech TC3000-RS is specifically developed for reach stackers and to meet the SOLAS requirements. The system is extremely reliable and delivers the most accurate weight verification data possible through a simple and automated process.

– Method 2 – The shipper (or third party) weighs all individual items of the container using a certified method approved by the State in which the container is being packed:

Integration of a mobile weighing system onto your forklift assuring a safe container transport to the port. The Griptech TC3000 is the most accurate hydraulic weighing system in the world and a safety product that can be mounted on any counterbalanced forklift.

The benefits of applying the Griptech TC3000-RS for both Method 1 & 2:

  • Weighing and handling combined in one movement.
  • Quick container weighing and data processing in less than 7 seconds.
  • The most accurate weighing possible of the container.
  • No maintenance costs.
  • Improves safety.

By installing a retro fit container weighing system into existing container handling equipment the terminal logistics is improved, the need to provide a dedicated weighing station is eliminated, and the port’s operational safety is considerably increased.

FORKLIFT SAFETY

The efficiency of a supply chain facility is depending on the loading and unloading areas, as increased market competition forces companies to get the ingoing materials and finished goods in and out as fast and effective as possible.

When looking at safety statistics, you soon conclude that these areas are where most forklift accidents are taking place. Loading and unloading areas can create complicated situations for even the best forklift driver, with numerous risks to avoid such as…

  • Speed
  • Workers
  • Stress
  • Traffic
  • Heavy freight
  • Awkward materials
  • …and so on.

A high share of these accidents result in staff injuries that end up costing the companies fortunes each year. The lack of a basic forklift safety control system can be blamed for most of these accidents.

With the Griptech OLP Overload Protection System you have a built-in overload security that will warn you every time you overload the forklift truck.

If required, the Griptech OLP system will warn the truck driver and workers by visible or audible alarm.

The other option is to integrate the Griptech OLP into the forklift by an operational restriction. This could be by warning the driver that he has tried to exceed the lifting capacity, specified into the system and set for that forklift truck, by connecting the Griptech OLP electric relays to the forklift. The relays could activate an automatic lowering of the forks, reduce the speed or a similar forklift action making it impossible to drive with the overload.
